Stepping off the tube at Camden Town on a chilly October evening, we walked the short distance to Mango Room; once inside were immediately warmed by a welcoming Caribbean atmosphere. With its pleasing genteel feel, charming, smiley staff and inviting yet unobtrusive decor, it's no wonder this Camden stalwart is still going strong after 16 years.

We started with cocktails - very much the done thing at Mango. The extensive list ranged from traditional classics to festive Caribbean options such as the Jamaican Mule and the Mango Room Rum Punch. The diverse food menu allows diners to engage with Caribbean cuisine to varying degrees. We shared a platter of sea bass, snapper, tiger prawns and scallop with pineapple salsa and fried cassava to start. It was exceptional - fish is a real strength here. Expertly cooked and elegantly presented, its flavours were all delicately balanced. The salmon carpaccio with pineapple salsa and the grilled goat's cheese and pesto salad also tempted. My chargrilled chicken with spicy jerk sauce proved a punchy and confident main course, with sides of moreish roti bread and a light avocado salad. For dessert, rum-flambéed bananas and cinnamon ice cream formed the perfect partnership: delicious and uncomplicated. This is Caribbean-fusion food for both daring and unaccustomed palates, confidently cooked and expertly presented.
